  plang: 9..Qb6 had first been played in game 3 of the four game match for the 1999 Russian Championship between Bezgodov and Sakaev; Bezgodov had played 15 Bd3 and Sakaev had gone on win (not included in this database). Another win in game 4 clinched the Russian Championship for Sakaev.

  plang: After a draw in Game 1 this win in Game 2 of the Finals of the World Cup clinched the match and the tournament for Anand. 5 Nce2 is a line that Anand has played on several occasions. 6..cxd 7 cxd..f6 is a sharp line to take advantage of White's slow development. An unexplored line is 10 Qh5+..g6 11 Nxg6..Bxd2+ 12 Kxd2..Qxb2+ 13 Ke3..Qxa1 14 Nxh8..Kd8 with unclear consequences. Anand thought that Bareev should have considered avoiding the exchange of knights with 16..Nd8 or 16..Na5 followed by..a6. Korchnoi recommended 18..Rhe8 followed by ..a5 and ..a4. Bareev had a tough endgame defend but is decision to win the exchange with 22..c5 was questionable as the White queenside pawns were powerful. Still, he had a chance to draw until 26..Rc8?; a better defense was 26..Rd8 27 Kc4..Ke6 28 Rd2..Rd7 29 c6..Rd6 30 Kc5..Rhd8 31 Nc7+..Ke7 32 Rxd6..Rxd6 33 Nd5+..Ke6 34 Nf4+..Ke7 35 c7..Rd2 when Anand had assumed he would still have some winning chances. Bareev resigned due to 38..Ke7 38 f5..e1(Q) 39 Re6+.
